1 Thes. 4:1a. “Finally, brothers, we instructed you how to live in order to please God.”
Here, Paul instructed the believers that it is God’s will for them to be sanctified or be set apart for Him, avoiding sexual immorality and controlling their bodies in a holy and honorable way. Lots of people desire to know the will of God, but scripture declares two definite things which never change concerning the will of the Lord: First, like what is stated on 1 Thes. 4, it is always His will that you be sanctified. Second, it is always His will for you to give thanks in all circumstances (1Thes. 5:18).
So why does sanctification pleases God? The main reason stem from the fact that God’s very nature is holy, righteous, and good. He wanted these natures to manifest in us – the very thing we all have sinned and fallen short of (Rom 3:23). When God works to a person, He works toward producing His nature in that person. It is the heart of God’s plan that His nature be reflected on us.
